Facing a Deficiency Judgment in Chicago?
Our Chicago Consumer Protection Attorneys are Here
When a home is lost through foreclosure, sometimes the home's sale price is less than the mortgage amount owed, creating a deficiency. In cases such as these, the lender may file for a deficiency judgment in order to collect the remaining amount owed. In the state of Illinois, foreclosures go through the state court system and lenders can file a lawsuit in order to obtain a deficiency judgment from the borrower. If you are dealing with a deficiency judgment matter, Atlas Consumer Law wishes to lend you a helping hand.

Frequently Asked Questions About Deficiency Judgment
Because issues regarding deficiency judgment can be difficult to understand, our team of Chicago consumer protection lawyers have answered a few frequently asked questions:
- Will I still owe money after foreclosure? Many individuals ask this question when they are deciding whether they will contest the foreclosure, make a plan to avoid the foreclosure, or walk away from the property. To measure, you must determine the difference between the amount the lender ends up with in total and the amount of your loan.
- Can the foreclosing lender get a deficiency judgment after utilizing robotically signed documents? If a lender has utilized a robotic signature to foreclose on your home, you may have a defense to the deficiency judgment. Our lawyers can explain more during your consultation.
- How will a lender collect a deficiency judgment? Once the lender has obtained a judgment against you, the lender can move on to collect on that deficiency judgment. If the mortgage creditor acted as the second lien holder, the lender will more than likely pursue collection efforts.
